I am the author and the owner of a self-pubished book (the ISBN is assigned to me). That book is now being translated into another language.

1) Will I automatically become the owner of the translated version?

2) If not then what should I do to become the owner?

3) These questions have to do with the following anticipated scenario:

a) The book, submitted to a publisher (in another country) is accepted.

b) Suppose it does not sell very well. Would I be allowed make this book freely available over the Internet? The answer probably depends on the country. Would I be able to do this in your country?

I imagine it will all depend on what is written in the contract - read the small print and only sign it if you are happy with it.
